Note: reading ultrasounds is tricky. I do not think they will help you with a malpositioned kid - The vet came out and did ultraosunds for us - but she could only offer how many kids *might* be in there, and the ultra sound needs to be done in a certain "window" to determine that.
You don't have a vet with ultrasound experience out there?

Right now I am getting about 4 gallons of milk a day...and I still have three girls to put on the milking line (but they are all small goats) Even still having a place to put two gallons of milk when I get back to the house is a challenge...

The only vet I know of with an ultrasound is my horse vet - and he flat-out refuses to do anything BUT horses. :sigh: Don't know about the stupid vet - I've never asked.

Our "goat" vet doesn't have any type of ultrasound - he's working on it, but it'll be a while. So...we're kinda on our own for stuff like that.

I had looked at the "Preg-Tone" machine....but it's almost $500, it's not 100% accurate, and it doesn't tell you how many might be in there - just if (maybe) there's any at all. :sigh:

When did breeding animals get so expensive/complicated?
